Should I eat it or paint it?

Posted On: March 12, 2010

Photographer: Ron Cohn

Koko holds a beautiful fruit cup made by one of our wonderful produce volunteers, Susan Lutter. After eating the fruit out of the cup, Koko then proceeded to eat the inside of the container - a small seedless watermelon - before moving on to her next course. (Thank you, Susan, very creative!)

To see why Koko might have been wondering if she should paint it, visit our amazing Gorilla Art gallery (and yes, they"re for sale and the proceeds help take care of Koko and protect her species). Thank you.
